Visual Studio 2010 Tab Key Not Working
Several days ago, my tab key stopped working when editing C++ code in Visual Studio 2010. Everything else worked fine, even Ctrl-Tab. But pressing Tab on the keyboard would not insert a tab into the file. I tried disabling add-ins. No change. I reset the keyboard in Tools / Options / Environment / Keyboard. Still no change. I tried running devenv /safemode. That didn't work either.
Finally I looked at the other command line switches for devenv.exe, where I saw devenv /ResetSettings. Finally, that fixed the problem.
